Weak State Security Strategies
- 63 Downloads
The purpose of this chapter is to develop a framework for analyzing weak state security strategies. Analytically, the choice of security policy can be seen as consisting of two stages: the first, fundamental decision is a choice of policy orientation, which for a weak state is a choice between alignment and non-alignment; the second choice is from a variety of strategies, differing in, a) their degree of great power adaptation and, b) their degree of activism or passivism. “Policy” is in this book, for stylistic reasons, used as a general term, which can denote orientation as well as strategies.
